Geoff Roes tells us what to watch for at this weekend's @TheNorthFaceECS 50 mile championships.

For the first time in five years, I won’t be on the start line in Marin this weekend for The North Face Endurance Challenge 50 mile race. There are races out there that are more challenging, more scenic, and more inspiring, but I have run this race more times than any other ultra. There is no other race in North American ultrarunning that has drawn as many deep fields of top level runners in the past five years, and this makes for a very compelling event. Even though my health won’t allow me to line up at the start Saturday, I’ll still be watching closely from afar. Say what you will about the timing of this event, but one thing it does by being held in December is avoid competition with other major races. This, combined with the huge prize purse is what draws so many top runners from numerous disciplines to this event.
